Te Paetukutuku Hou

Te Paetukutuku Hou | Our new website

As a part of the refreshed communications plan, Hineuru Iwi Trust (the Trust) has undertaken a multi-staged approach to refresh its website. This included a complete re-build of a new website.

We are pleased that this work is now completed, and the Trust has a new, modern, and efficient interface to communicate between the operations of the Trust and the tribal members. While also having the ability to hold, store and display relevant documents and history of interest.

Over the coming weeks and months, the Trust will use the website as the nucleus of all communications.

Update: Education Grants 2022

Update: Education Grants 2022

Rapua te mātauranga, kia ora ai te iwi

Hineuru Iwi Trust and the Education Training Committee are pleased to announce that 106 registered tribal members have benefited from the 2022 Education Grants.

The funding pool for the 2022 Education Grants was increased to $50,000. The funding is split between primary, secondary, and tertiary students.

Through this year’s grants, primary students will receive $220, secondary students will receive $440, and tertiary students will receive $925.

This year the Trust sought to ensure communications about the Education Grants were viewed by as many as possible. The Trust supported paid advertising within the Meta social media platforms. These advertisements were targeted to individuals who like/follow the Hineuru Iwi Trust Facebook page and their friends. This enabled a broad approach to ensure wide coverage of the applications being open. Ultimately the advertisement reached 10,700 people. While it is inevitable that not all of these people will be Hineuru, a number will be.

In closing, the Trust and the Education Training Committee wish to congratulate all successful applicants in their pursuit of education, as this will enable a prosperous future for you, your whānau and collectively our iwi.

If you have any pātai or would like more information, you can contact David Stone from Te Mata Law:

Available on their website is all the information required and the necessary form.

*Please note that the form is not tikanga compliant as it currently does not allow for whāngai (David is working on this with the New Zealand Army). However, this doesn’t mean that whāngai cannot apply – they can; David and his team will need to work with you and New Zealand Army to get it through.
